A report by UCC this morning has shown that Ireland is falling behind when it comes to our targets on reducing childhood obesity. 

Findings from the study have led to calls for a reform of Ireland’s food environment, including the introduction of 'no fry zones', enhanced education on food, and changes to food production and marketing.  

Do you think we are doing enough to end childhood obesity? Or do we need to have the likes of ‘no fry zones’? 

Phil Moyles the Chairperson of No Fry Zone 4 Kids committee joined Andrea on teh show along with callers.
